listening? dana bash is cnn's chief congressional correspondent, a reporter in the worldwide reporting hall of fame. dana, the senate passed a comprehensive immigration reform bill. it stalled in the house right now. here's what senator chuck schumer said on cnn's "new day." >> we would much prefer a big comprehensive bill but any way that the house can get there is okay by us. i actually am optimistic that we'll get this done. >> he's now talking about the possibility of supporting a piecemeal approach. it seemed like a marker of sorts. how do you see this shaking out? >> it was a marker. certainly that's the way it's being perceived by house republican sources that i have spoken to about that. the only catch is that he's putting out an olive branch saying if republicans want to pass immigration in the process of splitting it up in smaller bills, that's fine. he's moving away from his idea of comprehensive immigration reform. here's the but. what they are not going to go for in the senate, these people who support comprehensive reform, is saying we'll pass border security bill now and in a

strings. >> a lot to talk about with david gergen, chief white house correspondent jessica yellin and dana bash. jessica, we heard the president make this a promise that it's going to become more transparent. he says it was already happening before the snowden leaks. but is that really realistic? >> well, as you point out, wolf, he did say that he wanted more transparency back in may. he said that. that was right before edward snowden's first leak was in june. so his assertion is that the snowden leaks just sped up a process that was going to happen any way. well, we also have to take a bigger look at the big picture, which is did snowden actually lead to these new safeguards he put in place? we know that two democratic senators have been calling for more transparency and even reforms for more than a year now. sn when the head of the intelligence community went before congress, he's admitted now that he was less than truthful in talking about them. so that was all before snowden. would this have happened without snowden? we can't know, the train has left the station, but it does seem to ha

dana rohrabacher speak yesterday and he definitely touched base with what is going on with china. the idea of free trade within the country, regardless of how absolutely despicable their behavior is justified and we did this before. i think that our guests would let you know henry ford and other american businessmen in the 1930s were enamored with the german miracle of turning around this care. of course they took away and turned and weapon resistance aimed at the united states and our allies. so when you do free trade with criminals, you're not doing anyone any good in the long run. >> my name is robin and i am from howard payne university in texas. and my economic development costs, we read a book about western imperialism and how the u.s. and great britain kind of imposed the western views on other countries. and it talks about state-owned enterprises and how those can be beneficial in some cases. in your opinion is there ever a time if they don't have a price can be beneficial, you know, at least to get it started and is it ever possible that the private owned. is it ever a g

completely different in the nsa -- >> but he said it so well. >> day in a, talk about -- dana, what do you think of his remarks? did it come too late? he covered a lot of ground. >> okay. i think it was three weeks too late. i would have said that he should have done this press conference about three weeks ago because when he said that all of these things in washington were phony scandals, one of them that he's talking about is the nsa issue. i have defended the president on all this and i keep asking, could you help us defend you. he did something today, he made very clear he's gog have four-point plan and talked about the four-point plan. it's amazing when you have unemployment at what it is, the part-time jobs issue, he wants to talk about the middle class and he's talking about section 215 of the patriot act? we are down way, way, way down in the weeds. i think again, he could have done it three weeks ago. i would have said he should have done more about the middle class up at the top. i don't think the announcement needed to be about this. >> before he got smacked around by the presid

, as opposed to the nsa surveillance program. dana, what is the reaction on capitol hill? i know the lawmakers are in recess, on vacation, the president is going on vacation tomorrow but we saw what speaker bayner said, suggesting the president was concerned about saving face than defending the programs. >> that's right. look, i mean, this is kind of the one issue or few issues, i should say where republicans are supportive of the president. this nsa program they say has been helpful and they have been kind of his biggest cheerleaders on this while the democrats, many of the democrats, as jessica was just talking to, leading liberal democratic senators have been maybe the most vocal in terms of criticism. this changed that a little bit. but one thing i would say about peter king, one of the lawmakers you were talking about, he said the president is on an apology tour. that illustrates the flight within the republican party because peter king, as you know is making noise about being president and he's trying to push the wing of the republican party that is more hockish against those on the repu

-host of the five, dana perino. you used to be press secretary for president bush. and after his press conference you would give him a critique. you would go into the oval office. he would try get to you to leave because you're very, very annoying. there's you. you look very different. what did you do? what would you tell president obama if you were going to the oval office about this particular press conference? >> well, a trip down memory lane. i love press conference day. i love to prepare for a press conference i love to prepare somebody else to answer questions. then afterwards, i would usually go in and say, well, sir, i thought it was great. there is just one little thing. and today for president obama, i would have said, i think, sir, this proved you should do these more often. you dominate the room. you came across as confident and calm and you addressed the issues. the one thing that i thought was unfortunately for him, the headline that's going to come out of this was his partisan attack on republicans on obamacare. >> you're like the lieutenant columbo of press secretaries. everything
